Our last Kalyana Mitta half-day program was on Sunday, March 9, 2014James Baraz and Elad Levinson co-lead this workshop focusing on conflict resolution, how to use the Dharma to make conflict productive when it arises, and how to encourage full participation in a KM meeting.  Audio from this workshop will be posted to by the end of March.

In June 2013, James Baraz taught a half-day workshop designed for the hosts, leaders, potential leaders and participants in Kalyana Mitta groups. You can listen to a recording of the workshop on

James wrote, "The real joy in facilitating a group is creating an environment that helps bring out the natural wisdom that each member possesses. Often this is done not by giving the answers but by looking for the Buddha in each participant and asking the right questions which invite that wisdom to emerge."

Our previous Kalyana Mitta workshop, held in November 2012, was lead by Daniel Bowling and Dana Curtis.  You can listen to a recording of the workshop on
